      How about nanotechnology?

      <Immunicon�s CellTracks Analyzer pictured on its website is an automated scanning cytometer that enumerates and differentiates between the immuno-magnetically selected cells based on the fluorescence signature of the cells.

      April 16, 2004 � Largely unbeknownst to the nanotech community, a company commercializing patented magnetic nanoparticles went public this morning on the Nasdaq exchange . . . .

      . . .

      Immunicon�s products could cut the time and sample size required for cancer diagnostics, said Juan Sanchez, a medical doctor and nanobiotechnology analyst at Punk Ziegel & Co. The technology could also be used for follow-up evaluations to determine the effectiveness of treatment.

      Its systems use the magnetic nanoparticles to separate cells based on the antigens on the surface of the cells. The company has done little to publicly capitalize on the fact that it uses nanoparticles, instead defining itself as a biotechnology company.

      �You have to consider that this is a basic use of the properties at the nanoscale,� Sanchez said. �The importance of Immunicon�s technology is the architecture that they use. It�s the system, not the nanotechnology.�

      And that, said Lang, is one reason this is unlikely to be regarded as a seminal nanotechnology IPO. But if their patented nanoparticles are considered an important enough part of the company, �I think it will be a very small step going forward that the stock market will start to look at them as a nanotech company.�

      Back at the first source, an article titled <DNA computer could target cancer>. Maybe a competitive technology? This article, like the one about Immunicon, is a year-and-a-half old. This technology treats as well as diagnoses.

      >>I think that technically symbiotic refers to two lifeforms that interact and affect each other, but it's commonly used to mean things that benefit each other.<<

      You must be right; now I see the 'bio' in the word. What a great memory aid! Thanks.

      >>I sure hope you're right. Medical technology is an area of which I know little. Fortunes are made and lost backing these sorts of companies, but I'm at a loss to know which to choose. I'm much more at home with computers and communications.<<

      Likewise. I lost money on a pharma whose Phase III surprised and disappointed (that was a stock I chose when my financial advisorette advised me against it), and my foray into defense is way out of familiar territory. So this foray into IMMC is with one blind eye and I can't see out of the other one. I should call it my Braille stock.

      >>Cool . . . wouldn't want a new brain anyway. :-)<<

      Heh, mine could use a tune-up

      >>I tried again using 'paste' (first time I just used 'drag and drop'), this time it worked.<<

      Mystery solved! And don't you find Cmd V much easier than drrrrraaaaagggginggg? I'm glad you can at long last customize your folder icons! :-) (See, my brain is graphic and arithmetic, not mathematical, as you must've discerned with my anti-inflationary Hershey Syrup.)

      >>Of course, 'control panels.' How quickly one forgets.<<

      Yes, which slows me down when I go to my iMac for something and can't remember some of my macros. OS X forced me to change some, so now they're in my brain's top level groove.

    • >>Yes, I believe they both used the other's computers to help design their own. That demonstrates the synergies of technology, the more technology the faster technology advances. There's a theory that this will eventually (and fairly quickly) reach a singularity beyond which human life will completely change:

      http://
      www.techcentralstation.com/091405C.html
      <<

      Yes, that's what the Cray's creator and Jobs did. And I can easily understand that your synergies of technology is as real as the synergy between vitamins C and E. I said their relationship was symbiotic, but maybe I should have said synergistic? (I never can remember that word.) Can it be both?

      That theory is plausible. When I think about Immunicon's CellSearch currently tracking cancer in the bloodstream, and that it's expected to eventually track other diseases, I'm seeing a diagnostic tool/procedure light years (it seems to me) ahead of imaging (CT scans, MRI), and I think 'the future is here'.

      The 'miracle mouse' especially piqued my curiosity, so I clicked on the link and read the article at
      http://
      www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,2087-1754008,00.html

      . . . and then about the "Methuselah gene" and about the theory that <human somatic cells could be reprogrammed to treat neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's> at
      http://
      www.guardian.co.uk/print/0,3858,5282378-103690,00.html

      At this point in time, the 'Methuselah gene' does seem like science fiction, but not all that many years ago so did going to the moon. Meanwhile, this is hopeful enough for me:

      <Scientists have created a "miracle mouse" that can regenerate amputated limbs or badly damaged organs, making it able to recover from injuries that would kill or permanently disable normal animals.

      . . .

      A similar phenomenon was observed when the optic nerve was severed and the liver partially destroyed.>

      Nerves, organs, and limbs. Has an optic nerve ever been regenerated? Now they need to work on . . . <The only organ that did not grow back was the brain>.


      >>I don't know. Like I said, I quit messing with icons quite a while ago. I just tried pasting a jpg onto the icon in 'get info' and nothing happened, though I don't know if I was doing it right.<<

      Not having watched over your shoulder while you did it, I have no idea. But you made me wonder whether I'd ever tried a big jpg, which might be expected to crash a hyper OS, so I pasted a full-size desktop photo in the Get Info icon box and it worked, didn't crash my computer. Gif and png graphics became folder icons with equal ease. When you tried pasting your jpg via the Get Info dohicky, did you make sure the icon was selected (blue 'halo' around it) before you did Command V? The only other thing I can think of is that maybe when you thought you were copying the jpg, it didn't 'take', didn't really copy, as that happens occasionally in OS X.

      The icons for my partitions are wispy circles � just one-pixel-wide rings that I created in ResEdit � so, instead of looking at clunky icons, I can see my wallpaper right through the circles. Almost the only clue that icons are there are the partition titles beneath. Caveat: with ResEdit, you need to omit one pixel in the circle, or it won't be hollow. However, if you make or convert them in Iconographer, you won't need to delete that pixel, your ring can be unbroken.

      >>I don't remember either . . . I'm pretty sure it was more difficult than dropping a picture in a folder. I vaguely remember a utility, maybe an extension.<<

      Curious, I Googled for "OS 9" and some other key words. Lo and behold, the info is at MacDesktops, right next to its pictures for the week! We selected them via the Appearance control panel. Ring a bell?

    • :P

    • >>Reality Check -- We can't cure the common cold. <<

      But we will.

      By not adopting the Kyoto protocol? ;-)

    • on Miracle Mouse

      sensationalistic journalism at it's finest, at worst scientific positivism.


      Reality Check -- We can't cure the common cold.

    • >>It truly was a horse to todays automobile.<<

      Do you remember that fascinating dialog between Steve Jobs and the creator of the Cray, in which they each confessed using the other's computer for their model, or something akin to that?

      >>Yeah, I used to like to customize the icons. I fell out of the habit and wasn't even aware you can't do that in OS X. You do have Spotlight and smart folders though, which make getting around (organizing) your computer really simple.<<

      Are you sure it's OS X generally, and not just Tiger, that won't let you customize your icons? For most of them, I've just copied them from wherever and pasted them in via the Get Info thingy. For icons I want globally (like the front-facing folder instead of the angled one, which I hated from Day 1, and banned it from my OS 8.5, too), I use CandyBar. If you can't find it in your Version Tracker, let me know and I'll find the link in my collection.

      >>Nice site, great pictures. Isn't it nice how easy it is to install a new desktop picture in OS X? :-) <<

      You know, I can't remember how I installed them in OS 8.5! What did we have to do? I do love being able to see a different picture every so many minutes (or seconds, if I should so choose), and I never could do that in 8.5 because I never installed the software needed.

      MacDesktops is very much worth exploring. I've found some stunners there. I could give you the links, but they're all for my little laptop screen. You'd then need to trace back to the assorted available sizes.

    • >>Yep, but I remember when there were only 'mainframes' and you wrote all your own prorams which you punched onto punchcards and carried around in a cardboard box that weighed about 10 pounds.<<

      Omigosh. That's a computer whose acquaintance I never made. Can't say I missed much fun!

      >>All that stuff you could customize in OS 9 is much harder to customize in OS X. However, X is much more capable and powerful than 9, so the trade off is worth it.<<

      That may be true, but it would be nice if OS X were capable of retaining something as simple as a Photoshop thumbnail or, better yet, where I put things in a folder. I also found a long time ago it wasn't keeping comments I'd entered at the Finder level. You know, when you select a file and do 'Get Info' (Cmd I)? If I wanted to return later to a site (say, for wallpaper), I would enter the URL in the Comment box. Most of them disappeared! So now I append the URL to a file's title.

      Speaking of which, this is my favorite wallpaper source. Every week they add new ones, plus each one is available in a multiple of sizes. I imagine this week's "Raemistrass 74, Zurich" and "Erasmus Bridge, Rotterdam, The Netherlands" would look gorgeous on a Cinema screen!

      >>It will be a while, they're typically over $2000 now. (but 'a while' in computer years isn't all that long).<<

      They do pass almost as quickly as light years!

    • >>If you use them only for backup they'll last plenty long. I suspect the ones that go bad are are mostly system disks.<<

      Probably, because they get so much rugged use. Gosh, remember when the Mac OS plus MacWrite plus MacPaint and maybe plus MacDraw ALL fit on a single-sided disk that held what? 400 KB? What's more, you could copy your OS and programs to a RAM disk (seemingly not much more than air inside the beige box), remove your OS/program disk, work with zero sound humming until you saved onto a second floppy (which took an ETERNITY per kilobyte).

      >>I'm sure you can get the proper cable, but you'll probably have to look in the drive's manual to find out what you need. Yes, the media is cheap and lasts a lot longer than magnetic media, though I think that's only important if you're saving movies and pictures for posterity.<<

      Yes, I remember now. I didn't want to chance my reams of research effervescing. The other reason I like removable media is the space saved. Though by now they probably have hard drives the size of my optical disks (same dimensions as floppies, but a little thicker).

      Boy, my optical drive must be ANCIENT. I just Googled for APS Technologies, which I was pretty sure was no longer extant, and, when I clicked on its link, up pops LaCie, with a photo of . . . STONEHENGE.

      I finally figured out how to burn a CD � piece of cake once I got past Apple's Help instructions and, after disk-imaging one partition, found it wouldn't fit on a CD. I'm still not thrilled with Apple's OS X. The CD version of my partition's saved files has played havoc with a host of their icons! Photoshop file thumbnails are now generic Photoshop icons, other icons have either disappeared or traded places. :-(� One partition is almost all copied, about five to go. And my time to do this is limited, because warranty will be up in about two weeks.

      >>There's a new blue laser device that's too expensive right now but that will hold 20-30 gigabytes of data. It ought to make backups practical when the price comes down.<<

      Please let me know when you see it at a fair price! I could use it yesterday!

    • pantone101naturalblonde pantone101naturalblonde Oct 10, 2005 10:30 AM Flag

      Since I'll make multiple backups, I hope at least one will be semipermanent. Hard drive storage makes me a little nervous because their mechanisms seem so delicate.

      Attached to my Quadra is still my optical drive. Its cabling is outdated. Is there a cable that would link between it and my laptop? I like those optical backups because the disks are supposed to be permanent. And removable storage is cheaper than hard drives.
